Two more goodies Phil. I see a lot of M13 images, and very good they are too, but galactic clusters never seem to get a lot of attention, so I am so pleased to see M29, it is a small galactic group, and it has to be seen at a fairly low power to appreciate it.

Good stuff.

Ron. :(

Cheers Ron, yes, M29 is a little beauty and easy to find as well :(

Of course not Mike, tweak away mate 8)

What I have done for a bit of fun is cropped out the fuzzy from the full

size image and inverted the image for better clarity.

It doesn't occupy many pixels but it's a galaxy shape for sure 8)

Loads of fun digging around these widefields :)

Ok i stretched the histogram, tweaked the levels, compressed it, and played with the RGB and came up with this

That's pulled the shape out Mike 8)

Made a note in my book to re visit that fuzzy but with a barlow

up front to get some more detail :(

Just a thought Phil but you must have taken more than 1 exp

have you tried stacking them?

maybe that`ll bring out some detail

Haven't a clue about the fuzzy but M13 looks great sitting there in all her glory

Not last night Mike, I was just on a "sky hop" if you know what I mean...

I've just about got my gear set to it's best now so will be doing some multi subs

stuff as the sky gets darker. :(
